Default Looking for a blackberry recipe.

Thread title pretty much says it all. I've never made soda so I don't really know how to formulate a recipe.

I've never made soda either, but anything that can be made into a syrup, can be made into a soda. To make a blackberry syrup follow this recipe: http://www.chow.com/recipes/10875?tag=rbxcch.2.a.1

With this you can either add it to seltzer water, or mix it with yeast and water to bottle it.

I made a blackberry soda using frozen berries, carbed with yeast. I went about it just like any fruit soda... simmer the berries for about 15 minutes, strain the pulp and seeds, add sugar to taste, cool, pitch the yeast, bottle until firm, chill, enjoy. The berries had good flavor, but not much body or bite, so I added a bit of fresh ginger and a pinch of mint. I usually make about 70 oz. total, which ends up in one 20 oz plastic bottle (to check carbonation) and 3 16 oz. glass bottles. Don't worry too much about a recipe, just go by taste. If your mix tastes good luke-warm, it should taste fabulous when carbonated and chilled.

Thanks, guys. I'll be using a soda keg, but I think it would be a really good idea to try a smaller batch first. The ginger sounds like a great suggestion.

Plan on straining the berries, then straining the juice through a fine filter. I have a special keg with a filter inside that I use with blackberry products.
